Major Chris Hunter

Former British Army Intelligence Officer, Bomb Disposal Specialist & Author

Chris Hunter had 'the world's most dangerous job, in the world's most dangerous place'. As the British Army's most experienced counter-terrorist bomb disposal specialist in Iraq, he took his life in his hands on a daily basis. He was so effective at defusing the crude, unstable but deadly devices, that terrorists on both sides of the conflict put a price on his head. Since retiring from the army, Chris has worked as a counter-terrorism consultant, writer and broadcaster.

"There can be few other individuals who have so willingly played Russian roulette with their own life to safeguard the lives of others"
